Frequent disinfecting of all common, high-contact surfaces will be on-going throughout the day.  Reservations will be available for all hours that Mullen Library is open. There will be no limitation to how many hours you may reserve, but please be courteous to other students and only schedule for times you realistically expect to use.

Study Space Reservations, January 6: Update

Repair of the water main break on the north side of Mullen Library is taking longer than anticipated. At this time, we do not know if we will have any water in the building on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. If you have made a study space reservation for tomorrow or plan to do that, consider this information and re-schedule if you are uncomfortable being in the building without access to water.

Book pickup is not affected.

We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Changes to Curbside Pick-up

Beginning Monday, November 30, curbside pick-up becomes book pick-up and moves from the back of Mullen Library to inside its front doors.  Library borrowers will still need to follow the instructions in the Libraries COVID-19 Information Guide to request a specific book(s) and schedule a pick-up time, but we anticipate that this change will save staff time and enable us to fill more requests.

Book pick-up hours from November 30 through the end of the semester will be M-F, 11 AM – 1 PM and M, W, F, 3 – 4 PM.

Library borrowers will enter the library wearing a face mask.  They will show their CU ID to the guard at the Welcome Desk and be directed to the opposite side of the Welcome Desk where they will pick-up their bagged item(s) and exit the library.

Curbside Pickup and Study Space Reservations: Expansion of Services

The University Libraries has made the following adjustments to our curbside pickup and study space reservations to accommodate more of the university community:

Effective immediately, curbside pickup hours have been expanded.  Once a library patron receives notification that an item is available for pickup, he/she may schedule pickup between the hours of 10 am-noon, M-F and between the hours of 4-5, M, W, and F.

Effective, October 13, the hours that study spaces may be reserved have been adjusted to 11-1, 2-4, and 5-7, M-F.  The gap hour between reservations is for sanitizing the study spaces.  Library users may reserve two time slots per day for a total of 4 hours, but must exit the building after each time slot. All library users will be required to submit a reservation request at least 12 hours in advance of the selected reservation time.
